The practice of mindfulness is not only about awareness; it does not stop at seeing life as it is. It is about reconnecting with the values that fire the cauldron of intention and attention – it is not the situation that creates our difficulties; it is the stance we take to it, [mindfulness] opens us to value (but not be passively accepting of) the circumstance as a means of cultivating a desire and a path to transform ourselves. -Lynette Monteiro.
This exercise is at the heart of your mindfulness journey and at the heart of dealing and freeing yourself from difficult emotions. Can you gently allow your difficult emotion to rest in the background but really be present for this moment. Again, each time you feel the difficult emotion creep into the foreground acknowledge it and let it be as you go about your day to day life.
